“The Power of Massive Invariant Environments”

In many fields (physics, mathematics, economics) problems often could not be solved directly without special assumptions. We want to highlight one particular case of such assumptions when space, where the problem is being solved, could be represented as a collection of interconnected cells or nodes conforming to the very same rules and preserving carefully designed invariants. We will start from simple rules of solvability in the world of famous “15” puzzle (static or passive invariants) and reach elegant results in graph theory regarding the complexity of the shortest path finding algorithms. Then we will turn to dynamic or active invariants. Here we will go through Conway’s Game of Life and will touch the physical problem of modelling Dirac’s Monopole with help of spin ice and will finish our discussion with some important invariants that are used in crypto-currencies like Bitcoin. We hope this methodological talk will inspire researchers from different areas to look at their problems from a new perspective.

“Simulation as a decision support tool”

Simulation modelling provides a lot of possibilities for the decision-makers. Now, based on simulation modelling results, the decision-making become more efficient, clear and proved-by-numbers. The simulation modelling could be applied in almost all areas of activities of a human being, the good examples of simulation modelling application could be found in such areas like business process optimization, in traffic flow modelling and forecasting, logistics and manufacturing. The talk will present several case-studies (examples of contract projects) of how simulation modelling, could help to make the right decisions, at the right time and in right place.
